Thread: mysql_connect(); error

  1. #1

    mysql_connect(); error

    I recently upgraded to PHP5 and for some reason I am having issues with a website that uses the mysql_connect() command and it is giving me this error.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /home/httpd/vhosts/ on line 2

    I am assuming they removed this function in PHP 5. What would I replace it with?

    Are you passing the correct variables to the function?

    $link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');

    use mysql_error for some quick and dirty debugging:
    PHP Code:
    $link mysql_connect('localhost''mysql_user''mysql_password');
    if( !
    $link ) {
    mysql_error() );

    I found out that is was a MySQL error from somewhere. I am not good as VI
